Auburn struggled through a six-game losing streak to start SEC play, despite featuring one of country's top scoring duos in Chris Denson and KT Harrell. Now the Tigers have won two in a row, and travel to South Carolina on Wednesday after placing five players in double figures in a victory over Georgia on Saturday. The Gamecocks sit in last place in the SEC, one game behind the Tigers and Arkansas, but have shown signs of being competitive in four of their past five contests.South Carolina lost 75-71 Saturday to third-place Mississippi, lost to the Rebels by one point two weeks ago, pushed Missouri in an eight-point loss and recorded its lone conference triumph in a blowout of Texas A&M. Senior guard Brenton Williams is averaging 24.3 points in the past three games, hitting 16 3-pointers during that span while establishing himself as the Gamecocks' offensive leader. Denson and Harrell, who average a combined 38.7 points, saw the other three Auburn starters combine for 32 points and 17 rebounds against Georgia.
